Driftless Prairies: Native Habitat Restoration

Nature inspires awe!

Sandhill Crane

These birds have a most awesome and raucous call with mating pairs vocalizing in unison.  The adults look a lot like Whooping Crane juveniles.  Most birds have an internal navigation system, but cranes do not and they have to learn their routes from their parents. Migratory routes are recalled via visual landmarks.

For more info, to hear their songs, check out Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
